As the New Year approaches, you might be thinking about cleaning and clearing your space for the cozy winter months ahead. January is always a good month for editing, in your home and otherwise. For a simple update to any room, I love Brooklyn sculptor Michele Quan’s hand-thrown stoneware bells. Not only are they beautiful to behold—every detail from the reclaimed wood knocker to the hand-painted gray stripes is thoughtful—but they add a sense of calm through their subtle, melodic chime. You can hang one anywhere from your entryway to your kitchen. If you live in Southern California or a similar climate, try hanging one outdoors so it’ll catch in the wind.
These special bells also make a lovely hostess gift, should you be staying in a friend’s vacation home or cabin this winter. I love gifting home items as a thank you for a friend or family member’s generous hospitality! XXJKE
